CalvinCalvin is an Adult Basic Education Learner for Literacy Advance in Houston. Calvin lost both of his legs to diabetes. He came to Literacy Advance by the complete "Act of God" to learn how to become literate. “When I first started [at Literacy Advance], I didn’t know my ABCs. I’ll be honest with you. I used to be afraid to talk about it,” said Calvin.

“I didn’t know my right from my left. I didn’t know my ‘m’ from a ‘w.’”

When referring to his tutor, Marc, at Literacy Advance, Calvin said, “I’m learning different things every day. I appreciate him being patient with me.”
